Stoneflies on the Deschutes R. (Oregon)…

My son, Tony Muncy of Muncy Designs and I ventured over for the day on the beautiful Deschutes R. in Central Oregon. Word ways the Stoneflies were ’emerging’ onto the shoreline vegetation. So we thought we would see if the Redside trout were at all connecting with the adult Stones or nymphs. We centered upon the river North of Maupin, Oregon and some 15 miles downriver we found plenty of Stonefly nymphs crawling out onto shoreline grasses. The adults were emerging from the nymph’s and fluttering into the trees. We fished nymphs hard with only a few bumps. As the shadows finally fell upon the river, the expectations were adult Stonefly patterns would yield splashy takes. Alas, the trout karma didn’t align with the bug karma. A few fish, tons of bugs, glorious scenery and weather. The hatch is evolving toward some amazing times for some fly fishers in the days ahead as the ‘hatch’ progresses up river and the trout and bug karmas align.

Cricket on a Rose….

Great Green Bush Cricket

This visitor, a Great Green Bush Cricket, on a rose in the front yard was patient as I maneuvered the lens within its long antennae range. Going hand held and a breeze eliminated all but a few images.

warm Summer’s eve…

A Summer’s eve with a light breeze, more warmth than coolness. The tree’s leaves rustle now and then. Non-threatening clouds drift across the sky with layers of different colors. The sun’s rays work upward and outward behind the clouds. Hummingbirds make a final food run. Pesky mosquitos make their first food run. A pleasant day transitions into relaxed words like..”damn, I just got bit on the ankle!” early evening-SwittersB-backyard

Dragon Fly

I watch for the visit from the Dragon Fly

that emerges into the world from below. They visit, they land atop my rod.

And, as if to send me positive energy, they stay longer than a skittish, common bug, inspiring me,

then bid me goodbye. Soon I see them coupled, in lusty flight, gliding by in the throes of bug love.
